    The trio of reigning champions are all involved in domestic action ahead of next week’s return to European duties

    Ahead of the impending Champions League action that could shape either of the four teams’ destinies in Europe’s elite competition, attentions turn to this weekend’s domestic action.

    The Bianconeri’s opponents on Tuesday night at Juventus Stadium, Olympiacos, are involved in a tasty fifth versus second Super League Greece tie when they visit Asteras Tripolis in Saturday’s late kick-off.

    After last week’s “derby of the eternal adversaries” victory over arch-rivals Panathinaikos, Michel’s men are eager to repeat the feat in Arcadia and close the three-point gap on leaders PAOK Salonika who travel to lowly Ergotelis.

    Up first  though for Juventus’ Group A rivals are Malmo who travel to midtable Atvidabergs, looking to end the season with a flourish when the duo face off in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

    Age Hareide’s men are searching for their 19th league victory of the campaign after wrapping up their 22nd Allsvenskan title in style away at AIK Solna in early October.

    Elsewhere, Atletico Madrid, who travel to the Swedish champions on Tuesday evening, host a Cordoba side yet to register a win in La Liga this season.

    In what could be a potential banana skin for Diego Simeone’s outfit, they will be desperate to not lose ground on early pacesetters Barcelona and Sevilla who both sit top, two points ahead of Los Rojiblancos.
